June 11, 2012 - 5:43 PM

SHAWNIGAN LAKE, B.C. - Mounties in Shawnigan Lake, B.C., have arrested two local men after a report of gunshots set off a police pursuit involving an all terrain vehicle.

Around 9:30 Friday night, officers were responding to the shots-fired call when two men on an ATV spotted the patrol car and fled.

Police chased the pair in their cruiser for about a kilometre before the men pulled over.

Police seized a shotgun, four rounds of ammunition and several cans of beer.

The 26-year-old driver of the ATV is facing numerous driving-related charges as well as a charge of flight from police.

RCMP are still looking into possible charges stemming from the shotgun and ammunition.
